Stunningly Preserved 1788 Home for Sale in the Healthiest County in PA

According to the Philly Post, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released a health study with some good news for West Chester students: Chester County PA is, overall, the healthiest county out of Pennsylvania’s 67. Fortunately, the area is lousy with great real estate, like this beautiful stone farmhouse in East Bradford.

Though last week we said anyone searching for a farmhouse should start with Bucks County, there’s no question Chester County has plenty of gorgeous farmhouses too. Here’s a perfect example. Sitting on 3.5 acres just outside of West Chester, this 7-bedroom, 4.5 bath home was built in 1788. The original plank flooring has been retained throughout, as has much of the woodwork, ceiling beams and the hearths, which are distinguished, in the listing, from the “working walk in fireplaces” with “cranes and stone.”

You’ll notice in one photo there’s a pet in the very lovely bay window. We don’t know how much that doggie is, but the home–newly listed as 5,600 square feet–is $850,000.
